Abstract

Statistical applications and repercussions of Poisson's work are reviewed in historical perspective with special reference to (i) the distinction he made between two kinds of probability; (ii) the law of large numbers; (iii) the Poisson distribution; (iv) the difference between two proportions; (v) legalistic statistics; (vi) Poisson's summation formula; (vii) the Cauchy distribution; and (viii) the Poisson bracket.
